As something of an accompanying piece to our exclusive podcast series, 90s State of Mind, Imran Mirza jumps behind the boards for a journey filled with wonderment as we delve into some joyful hip-hop classics from the genre's golden era.
The 90s State of Mind podcast - a collaborative project between 4ever in Electric Dreams and Blue-in-Green:RADIO.
Blue-in-Green:RADIO is a London-based online internet radio station which celebrates 21st century soul, jazz, funk, Latin & hip-hop music.
Episode #31 of the Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind podcast sees the team delve into the concept of rebellion in music - those people that went to war with other artists, audiences, record labels, political parties... Exploring the theme across numerous genres including rock, hip-hop and country music, we ask what constitutes rebellion, plus we attempt to answer the question 'who was the most rebellious artist we can name?'
Episode #30 of the Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind podcast sees the team delve into seasons 1 and 2 of the revered Disney+ entry into the Star Wars universe, The Mandalorian. Released to universally rave reviews, we look at the why the side stories (The Mandalorian, Rogue One, Solo) are so much more coherent and generally more enjoyable than the main films; how much fan influence has there been on The Mandalorian or is this one creator's vision, and we ask the question if these types of shows are very much the future of these large franchises.
And joining Dan Collacott, Tee-J Sutherland and Imran Mirza on this week's excursion is long-time friend and broadcasting companion, Denis-Jose Francois. Harking back to our days on the Liberation Frequency podcast this reunion has been long overdue so we very much hope you enjoy the podcast as much as we did.
Let's admit it, no one really enjoyed 2020. Our sister podcast Ground Level returns after 4 years to rake over the still burning coals of 2020. Discussing protests, forest fires, Brexit, US elections, political farce and a pandemic that just won't give up and disappear up the Chinese Bat's arse from whence it (allegedly) came!
Emanating from London, UK, and hosted by Dan Collacott, Tee-J Sutherland and Imran Mirza, our 4ever in Electric Dreams website and accompanying podcasts are designed to help us celebrate the things we loved growing up and the things that continue to excite and inspire us today.
